CT&I engaged Ultra Consultants to direct the project, steer CT&I through business process improvement (BPI), guide the software selection process and manage implementation.

See how CT&I streamlined their processes and gained valuable data and critical analysis through an ERP selected for their unique needs.

About The Company

Founded in 1914, Chicago Tube & Iron is one of the largest specialty steel service centers in the United States, with $300 million in annual revenue and 11 locations throughout the Midwest and in Monterrey, Mexico.

“Ultra brought real value to the project, and was able to leverage its people, industry expertise and experience to get the job done. We don’t think we’d have been able to do it on our own.”
– Chris Prodoehl, Vice President of Information Technology
